Have an Outrageously Fun Weekend with the Plastic Bottle Boat Regatta

Looking for a unique and entertaining event for your weekend plans? Then check out the wackiest race in Florida, the De Soto Heritage Festival Bottle Boat Regatta! This oddball boat racing festival is packed full of fun and will be held on the South side of the Palma Sola Causeway on April 14th.

Bring the family out to see teams compete in homemade boats of all shapes, sizes and themes! The teams participating have been building their handmade, odd-looking boats that float on hundreds of plastic bottles just for this special race. The whole community is invited to witness various teams of friends, co-workers, and children who have spent countless hours fabricating an array of exotic-looking boats that float on hundreds of plastic bottles! The event is a heartwarming and exciting way to spend your Saturday, so come join the fun as teams vie for a range of awards like fastest boat, best dressed crewe, and more!

If you feel like escaping Holy Cross Manor II Apartments in Palmetto, Florida for the day, this event is a perfect opportunity to do just that!
